CD Projekt Red will then take the stage as they remember their journey in creating the Witcher games and how it shaped games through the years.

Now, the developers behind the games discuss how they brought their immersive stories to life—before revisiting old memories, uncovering forgotten artifacts, and reminiscing about their favorite moments from the franchise.”
Fans, old and new will then get a deep dive into Kaer Morhen where Witchers can learn the ways of the School of the Wolf, A new mobile AR video game by Spokko called The Witcher: Monster Slayer, and figures inspired by the Witcher franchise.
Henry Cavill, who plays the White Wolf Geralt of Rivia, will lastly get a solo panel to end the event where he discusses a few topics related to the franchise.
“To close out WitcherCon, fans will hear from Geralt of Rivia himself, Henry Cavill, who will sit down with moderator Josh Horowitz (MTV & Comedy Central host) for an in-depth conversation about fantasy, destiny, and the wider Witcher Universe. The White Wolf may even have a surprise or two in store…”
